Explanation

Rahul Gandhi is leading a road trip that started on 14 January in Manipur and will conclude on March 20th in Mumbai. Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra (BJNY) is the name of this event. The Congress has decided to go on the streets ahead of the general election in 2024 to join the pre-election mobilization against the ruling BJP.

In this case, a 12-second video shows a massive crowd moving along a street. We also see people standing on the terrace from their buildings and filming this scene. This post is shared with a claim stating, “Crowds gathered on the streets after Rahul Gandhi’s announcements.” The users have also added questions like, “Will the media show this massive crowd?” Some posts have also added hashtags like, Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra. You can view related posts with similar claims here, here, and here.

What’s the truth?

We began our analysis using all the keyframes that went viral. This directed us to an older tweet from Congress X’s official page.

The post carries the same viral clip with the caption, “India joins in Dausa, Rajasthan #100DAYSOFYATRA.” It’s important to note that the tweet was published on December 16, 2022.

We took that as a cue and searched the internet with relevant keywords, which directed us to an article dated 17 December 2022 posted by Navbharat Times. The report was captioned “Rajasthan Bharat Jodo Yatra: Bharat Jodo Yatra broke the record in Dausa, Sachin Pilot showed his ‘strength’ to Rahul Gandhi.” Also, this article carried a screengrab of the same viral video.

All the details mentioned above confirm that the viral clip is old and outdated. Moreover, this clip has no connection with the ongoing Yatra of Rahul Gandhi.

Conclusion:

In conclusion, the widely circulated rumor that a sizable gathering of people participated in Rahul Gandhi’s ongoing yatra through the streets is untrue and deceptive. In reality, the widely circulated video dates back to 2022, during the Yatra that was held in Dausa, Rajasthan.
